Hello, everyone! Trying a new article concept where I deliver all the news I get via twitter in one article every month. (This one is big because it covers January and February.) If you like it and would like to do similar ones for other countries, I encourage you to do so. The rules are: 
  1. It MUST be drama/movie-related, and the people have to be on MDL (or meet the requirements to be on MDL).
  2. If someone has already written a large article on a bit of news, do not include it (but you may link their article).
  3.  You must write objectively and keep comments to yourself or friends feeds in order to just present the facts they are shown to you. 
  4. Cite your sources so people can research if they want to or get more information on a topic.
  5. Not a rule but try and keep the food cart theme but specialize for your country if you wish.

With only one month to do here on after I think I should be able to make it feel less list like and include more graphics and poster reveals, but this was too big as it was. NOTE: Not all people and dramas are in the database at the time of submission, but I will endeavour to add them as soon as the submission is complete. I would like to have it sent to the editors a few days before the end of each month to be published within the first week of the following month. I don't want to have to wait for my slow typing to enter everything : ) and then wait for the approval.
